Server Share trashcan for workstation deletes.

I have a user that worked all morning on a file, saved it and then promptly when into the folder and deleted it. The file is stored in a share on a SBS 2008 server. Previous versions is set to do restore points every two hours from 6am - 6pm. Unfortunately, she saved it at 7:45,  8:05 and 9:47, then deleted it at 9:48. So she has a copy from 8:00 version is actually the 7:45 version.

On that folder structure we also have a tool turned on called SYNCToy that copies all files to duplicate folder structure. It runs every 5 minutes, but unfortunately does not copy files that are opened or locked. So the 7:30 version of the file is in that folder structure. This folder structure is never suppose to have any files deleted (it has scans of documents that they shread and the only copy), but users freak if they cant get rid of files. So synctoy allows me to get the best of both worlds as it is set NOT to sync deletes, only additions and changes.

I hear that there is a policy that I can set in GP that will make the system create a deleted files trashcan for each user or at least save deletes that are made by users from workstations on files stored on server shares.

Thanks.

AFAIK the trashcan only works with a re-directed "My Document" folder.

You could try SyncBackSE or SyncBAckPro http://www.2brightsparks.com/freeware/index.html which do copy open files

AFAIK as well, but

The question came down to: "Check to see if there is some policy/protocol that saves deleted items from a server."

The more people I get saying NO, the better for me.

Thanks
